When I tried asking in private, I was told to stop complaining or loose
my mailing list subscription. I'd prefer not to make that mistake again.

For lakml, held for moderation _does_ mean it will return with
"posting rejected: no reason given" in few days. I have never seen any
other result, and have got perfectly reasonable messages rejected with
"no reason". So no, I do not believe there's cooperative human being
moderating lakml.

So... your solution to broken mailing list is to silence everyone who
complains?
